Does Scandinavia understand diminishing returns? 

Quantity isn't always quality.
The Durex Global Sex Survey for 2003, released this week, compares sexuality for people in 34 nations and shows Norwegians leading the world in casual sex.

Seven out of 10 Norwegians have had a random sex partner and the nation is among the top of the list for one-night stands, Afternposten reported.

Norwegians are also among the least sexually satisfied in the world. Only 62 percent said they were content with their sex life, placing them as low as 29th on the list.

Other findings in the study: 11 percent of Norwegians have paid for sex, 42 percent have had telephone or Internet sex, 10 percent have faked orgasms and 12 percent have had homosexual sex.

Danes were unhappier than Norwegians, ranking 30th in contentment. Swedes were only slightly more content, but with a low average for sexual intercourse at 102 times a year.
The average worldwide is 127; Hungarians are about 50% more than Singaporeans "the only nation to dip(?) below the magic (???) 100 mark". Magic?

Yeah, I had to look it up. Thanks to Newmark's Door for wasting the last fifteen minutes of my life. Cannot wait to see what this does for my Google search hits.
